With this unit, I've also used Orwell's "On Shooting an Elephant" and MLK's "Letter from Birmingham Jail" to help students better understand the appeals, but those materials are not my original work.
All documents are Microsoft Word or Microsoft PowerPoint.
The free preview includes a sample of questions from the multiple choice test and it's in Word format.
I do not have keys for all documents
